By the end of January 1973, it was clear Laugh-In long had its best days behind. While it was fun to have Angie Dickinson as a guest star, one can tell that such skits as the Farkel Family had run out of steam.
Season 6 was marked by the departure of George Schlatter and Ed Friendly as executive producers; Dan Rowan and Dick Martin took over the role. With it came a major cast turnover, and one may wonder if this may have hurt the series.
The season started off decently, especially with a bunch of cheerleaders who appeared in the first few episodes. They were clearly absent by this time. Like it or not, the series was playing like a pre-recorded version of Saturday Night Live that was running on tired blood. In all fairness, jokes remained topical as ever.
But despite the appearance of Angie Dickinson, it was clear the end of the road was approaching.
